RAPS Mentoring Program

The Regulatory Affairs Professional Society (RAPS) mentoring program is designed with the intention of cultivating relationships as well as inspiring and empowering its members through the engagement of meaningful conversations, the achievement of overarching goals, and shared wisdom that supports continuous career development and lifelong learning. 

RAPS Mentoring Program has an overarching goal to foster structured, trusting, and collaborative relationships with those working in the regulatory affairs profession. The mentoring program is an inclusive, multicultural leadership development opportunity dedicated to professional enhancements.

RAPS seeks mentors who will guide, support, and encourage mentees to further develop and enhance their professional identity and career development journey. The key to a good mentoring relationship and successful experience is a united commitment by the mentor and mentee to share interests, effectively communicate, and reach a mutual agreement regarding the overall goals and expectations. The RAPS mentoring program is a members-only benefit.

Note: The RAPS Mentoring Program is a members-only benefit and is currently only seeking members interested in being mentors. The program will be open to members seeking to be mentees in early June 2024. Further details about the mentee program will be provided via email communication.
